I wanted to pop in and show you a step card I created using Whimsy's Bling Baby by KennyK. I've loved this image for a long time now, but wow, I took forever to color her! And then at the final stage, when I color around the finished with Pumice Stone, I accidentally got her shirt wet and there's a smear! Oh well, I still like how the card turned out :)
Oh oh, and I FINALLY got to use the Whimsy Stamps Film Strip Sentiments the way that I envisioned them! Like I've said before, it's so awesome to see people using them in different ways that you've never even thought of! When I created the sentiments, I was thinking that they would be stamped on acetate (or a transparency sheet, which is what I used) and then arranged to make them look like actual film.
That's what I've done for this card. First, I stamped the sentiments onto the rough side of the transparency and then I cut around them and laid them out to make them look like one long film strip. I wasn't too careful so it turned out kind of crooked, but I'm sure you can do a better job. Then, I just glued them on with regular clear-drying glue along the top and bottom. The glue didn't show up at all so I was happy about that; I thought it would be like vellum where you could see glue spots.
A criticism I had from hubby was, "How come they're all square, you do should something different." So that's how I ended up with this :) Anywho, hope you like my card!
For those in the States, I hope you enjoy the long weekend :)
